  1. Hopefully not just AirBnb. AirBnb includes true home ‘sharing’, along with short term rental of housing with no operator resident. The others, like Homeaway/VBRO ONLY allow full units. Irony is that AirBnb is more willing to participate, and the others are laying low. But, we need all the data in order to understand the real situation.
